Anybody know a good source for Wiegle's FrameSaver?

Or a replacement concoction? What's in FrameSaver anyway?

Try your LBS or local frame builder. I found it at both locations and this is in London so it can't be too hard in the States.
If you can't find it locally, Rivendell has it. Or try ...Small Ring

Should be able to find it or order it through your LBS. If not, Rivendell carries it, and I think Nashbar had it in the catalog a few months ago.
Old-time substitute is linseed oil--just pour it in the frame and tip and tilt until it runs all over and coats everything, then dump out the excess. Frame Saver or Boeshield (what Rivendell's using now, I think) is easier to put in, but as far as I've ever heard, they don't work any better.
or Branfordnm

I know that Excel Sports has it. In the past Nashbar had it but I don't see it on their site now. I just had a local lbs order some for me. In fact, I just Frame Saver'ed my new Torelli frame this past Sunday
